whether to go again >> and all it takes is one juror and i think that's the hope to trump hangs onto that he at least reaches >> somebody who ends up city in that jury. >> do you think that he will be found guilty in this trial? >> i shutter if he doesn't get found guilty because i think that sends a message that if you're in power you can try anything to stay in power this federal case is one of four criminal trials. the former president has been seeking to delay, but just days ago, a manhattan judge threw out a motion to dismiss the charges in the case involving hush money payments during the 2016 campaign. that trial is now set to begin march 25th. thanks for watching the whole story

>> hello and welcome to our viewers joining us here in the united states and all around the world, you are watching cnn newsroom. and i'm rosemary church just ahead us president joe biden is set to meet with congressional leaders this week. as pressure for more aid to ukraine mounts. meanwhile, the president is on the ballot for tuesday's democratic primary in michigan, a state he is almost surely a win, but it could be a test of his support from important groups of voters and the idf presents its planned for evacuations from the gaza strip israel's war cabinet, as negotiations for an israel hamas ceasefire and hostage release go on live from atlanta.
12:02 am
>> this is cnn newsroom with rosemary church >> and thanks for joining us. more us aid to ukraine will be on center stage this week as the us house of representatives returns from a two-week recess on wedensday with ukraine's leader blaming recent losses on a lack of assistance. president joe biden plans to ratchet up the pressure in a meeting with congressional leaders on tuesday. talks will include house speaker mike johnson, who has refused to bring a senate bill, including $60 for ukraine up for a vote. pentagon and national security officials are also calling on johnson to allow a vote on the bipartisan senate bill. cnn white house reporter priscilla alvarez has more the white house is ratcheting up pressure on house republicans to pass 60 billion in additional aid to ukraine saying that the >> country faces a dire situation and is running low on ammunition, national security
12:03 am
adviser jake sullivan, taking it a step further, on sunday and calling on house speaker mike johnson. take it up and take it up immediately. >> while the reality is that putin gains every day that ukraine does not get the resources it needs, and ukraine suffers. and there's a strong bipartisan majority in the house standing ready to pass this bill if it comes to the floor? and that decision rests on the shoulders of one person. and history is watching whether speaker johnson will put that bill on the floor. if he does, it will pass, will get ukraine what it needs for ukraine to succeed if he doesn't, then we will not be able to give ukraine the tools required for it to stand up to russia. and putin will be the major beneficiary of that now the white house hours for the $60 billion in additional aid last year. and since then, president biden has repeatedly framed this as not only support for ukraine, but also imperative for us national security. and in recent days, white house officials have linked losses on the battlefield in ukraine to
12:04 am
congressional inaction with president biden warning that it is not out of the question for this to continue to happen if that aid isn't given to ukraine. of course, the white house is limited in what it can do meaning that they are going to continue this pressure for the days to come in the interim though the president and private conversations with us allies, allies are reaffirming us support for ukraine priscilla alvarez, cnn, the white house >> amid the push for more us aid for ukraine, a rare admission from volodymyr zelenskyy on the human toll, the war has taken on his country's military. the ukrainian president said 31,000 ukrainian soldiers have died in the war with russia sure and disputed russian claims of much higher casualty numbers. he also said tens of thousands of civilians have died in territory occupied by russian forces. cnn cannot independently verify these numbers cnn's clare sebastian
12:05 am
is following developments. she joins us now, live from now good morning to you, clare, as ukraine marks the start of a third year of war with russia, president zelenskyy is warning what will happen if he's country doesn't receive us aid, or what he'd been saying here is my presidency was speaking a lot on sunday at a conference on ukraine in 2024 and separately, cnn's kaitlan collins. and we see him trying to sort of variety of approaches here. one is a moral argument. he said to kaitlan collins that he couldn't imagine that it wouldn't be possible for congress not to pass aid that he was hopeful for a positive solution because he said, otherwise, i don't understand the world in which we live. he's also talked about the consequences, saying millions would die without us aid. so directly equating that lack of of weapons deliveries with the loss of lives both on the front lines and in terms of civilians, you talked about air defenses as a critical component and i think perhaps
12:06 am
most interesting of all, this is something that we haven't seen him do is naming that casualty figure. obviously we can't independently verify that, but he hasn't gone public with that before. i think the question is obviously why now one, perhaps to the ukrainian people that he just can no longer hide it. the graveyard's in filling up. everyone knows someone who's died. but secondly, also a message to congress that ukraine has to get real. they have to really be honest about the toll this is taking. and it is a very serious moment as he himself put it on the battlefield with russia on the offensive in multiple directions. this of course, as you also noted, a crucial week, president biden i tend to be meeting with congressional leaders on tuesday, really piling on the pressure there on speaker mike johnson to take that senate bill onto the house floor and separately here in europe, we have the french president convening a summit of international leaders to talk about aid to ukraine. europe is trying to step up, but ukrainian officials on sunday saying that even if europe does that, europe at european and us
12:07 am
production together isn't going to cover ukraine's needs on the battlefield. so here we have this very critical moment, which it seems like president zelenskyy was trying to seize there are as murray. >> all right. thanks to clare sebastian joining us live from london up next in the race for the white house primaries in michigan. although president joe biden issued a win, the democratic contest. tuesday's results could gauge his support among arab and muslim americans michigan congresswoman rashida tlaib is asking primary voters to choose. i'm committed to protest. mr. biden's handling of the israel hamas conflict. he is one of tlaib's fellow democratic representatives, debbie dingell we have to focus on michigan. there's no route to the white house. it does not go through here. and the prep president biden knows that. and quite frankly, so does donald trump, by news going to win on
12:08 am
tuesday in november that we've got to focus on we got a lot of people, we got to turn a lot of people are infected by the number of issues >> meantime, donald trump won a solid victory in south carolina's republican primary on saturday, beating rival nikki haley by just over 20 percentage points. the influential coconut work now says it will stop donating to her presidential bid. and will focus on house and senate which races. but haleon says, only she can beat mr. biden in november and says she's staying in the race through super tuesday next week. while trump argues that republicans are already united behind him you ever been ever there's never been spared like this, and i just want to say that >> i have never seen the republican party so unified as it is right there >> never been like does anyone seriously think joe biden or
12:09 am
donald trump will unite our country? he saw >> ron brownstein is a cnn senior political analyst and senior editor at the atlantic. he joins me now from charleston, south carolina. good to have you with us so in all surprisingly, donald trump won the south carolina primary, but nikki haley still got 40% support and is vowing to fight on despite news that one of her major donors, americans for prosperity, is holding spending on her campaign. what does haley achieved by continuing her fight? and what were the major takeaways from this race? do you think? >> well, i think south carolina really confirmed what we saw in new hampshire, and that is haley's coalition is not big enough to seriously threatened donald trump for the nomination. but our coalition is plenty big enough to cause him serious problems and the general election, if he can't mollify and courage rally at
12:10 am
you know, these last couple of races have been very consistent in all three of the big contest so far, iowa, new hampshire, and south carolina, trump is dominated among non-college voters. he's dominated among evangelical voters. he's dominated among partisan republicans, but he's consistently shown weakness among the groups where he has long faced resistance. it's only won about 40% of independents each time. she's one college graduates, each of the past two elections. and as we saw on saturday night in the big population centers, relatively speaking, in south carolina of charleston and colombia, that's where she performed the best. and so the dual message, the republican party is, this is trump's party. >> trump is also facing a cash crunch as time runs out for him to post high half $1 billion in bonds. where's this ultimately going? and will his legal woes continued to help or hinder him politically? do you think? >> well, they certainly have helped them in the primary. i
12:11 am
mean, there's no question about that. i mean, the his ability to portray himself as a victim and almost a martyr for his voters, you know, they're going after me because they are really trying to silence you i talked to plenty of voters down here who accept that argument and kind of transmuted into quasi religious terms that he is like literally a martyr on their behalf. but you continue again to see these kind of warning flares at the edge of the, at the edge of the race here, trump won a dominant victory here as he did in new hampshire. but something like 80% of haley voters in both states said they do not believe he will be fit to be president if he is convicted of a crime all of this hangs over. the republican party as does the question of him trying to channel campaign and contributions to pay for his legal bills. that was one of the biggest applause lines. and again, haley got down here when she argued that the rnc should
12:12 am
not turn into a piggybank for trump's personal legal problems, and he will have to come up with this money for the new york judgment. and the question of where and how he do sos, how he does so could free up more headaches for him. it's a >> big swing state of michigan is set to hold its primary race on tuesday, but some democrats are concerned about a possible anti-abortion protest vote and that state and a call from the left to vote uncommitted. how is joe biden expected to go and what might all this mean for the general election? as the president also continues to battle the perception of being too old for the task ahead >> yeah, i think michigan is a really indispensable state for democrats the shortest path to 270 electoral college votes, which is what it takes to win for biden, is to rebuild what i call 15 years ago, the blue wall. and that would require him to hold wisconsin and pennsylvania, both of which looked pretty good for him, i
12:13 am
think at this point, largely around the issue of abortion, but also michigan, where his polling has consistently been underperforming what denmark, where democrats have been. i mean, gretchen whitmer, the governor one of the state by 12 points in 2022, and trump is consistently leading there with biden struggling among white blue collar voters. younger people, and the arab-american community. this effort to have an uncommitted people vote, uncommitted, which is being supported not only by our american interests, but also by bernie sanders there's political organization. i think is an important test. a similar effort fizzled in new hampshire. it didn't really generate a lot of protests votes. but if it does generate a significant protest vote in michigan, which as i said, is almost an indispensable state for democrats. i think you're going to see more anxiety in the party about biden's posture toward benjamin netanyahu, who, you know, whatever else you can say about and he is somebody has identified with the republican party pretty overtly over the
12:14 am
years. and at the margin, probably would prefer to be dealing with donald trump in the white house than joe biden. and i think the pressure on biden to reconsider his relationship and the amount of ropey is giving netanyahu would probably be intensified significantly if this uncommitted effort, you know posts a serious results on tuesday, ron brownstein, always a pleasure to have you with us. appreciate it. >> thanks for having me >> it is still winter in the united states but much of the country won't feel like it in the days ahead, nearly 400 heat records, both high and low temperatures could be tied or broken across the central and eastern us today through wedensday. in some areas, the temperature shows could be more than 30 degrees above average meanwhile, a cold front in the western us will move east, but that will bring the threat of severe storms on tuesday the cooler air probably won't last long though with another warm

12:20 am
expected to resume in qatar today to try to secure the release of more hostages in exchange for a pause in the fighting. a senior white house officials, there's the negotiators have come to an understanding on the broad outline of a potential deal. joining me now is journalist elliot gokin. he's live in london. so elliot, what is the latest on those hostage and ceasefire talks set to resume today and the idf plan to evacuate palestinians from areas of fighting in southern gaza >> rosemary, as often is the case with these things, or devil is very much in the detail and it is those details that the parties, the united states israel, the egyptians, and katrise as mediators for hamas, are going to be trying to thrash out in those talks in doha to try to get a deal that will see at least some of those israeli hostages who are kidnapped on october the seventh, freed in exchange for a pause in the fighting, the release of palestinian prisoners and more humanitarian aid going into the gaza strip.
12:21 am
now, we heard from national security adviser jake sullivan over the weekend talking about the under standing of contours of a potential deal being reached. the sticking point up until now, at least so far as the israelis are concerned, has been hamas's demands for a complete end to the war and withdrawal of israeli troops from the gaza strip. and also the release of thousands of palestinian prisoners, whatever the case, prime minister benjamin netanyahu who over the weekend saying that even if a deal is reached to free those hostages in exchange for a ceasefire, that ground operation and rafah will still go ahead if we have a deal, it will be delayed somewhat, but it will happen if we don't have a deal. we'll do it anyway. it has to be done because total victory is our goal. and total victory is within reach, not months away, weeks away once we begin the operation and of course, the big concern expressed by the united states and others is that with more than 1 million palestinians
12:22 am
sheltering in rafah, that evacuating >> that civilian population and getting them to an area of safety and shelter is going to be an incredibly tall order for the idf. perhaps some of those palestinians will not get the message so just to exactly where they can go, many will be disinclined to move. taking the view that well, they've moved before so many times that where they are being told to go to may not be any safer than where they are right now, there are a lot of challenges in moving that. number of people. and the united states perhaps has scene added urgency or added to the urgency of these talks to get the hostages freed in exchange for a ceasefire in order to forestall this kind of ground operation prime minister netanyahu and the israeli government's perspective is that in order for hamas to be destroyed, in order for israel to be able to say mission accomplished as far as the destruction of hamas is concerned, it must go into refer to destroy what it describes as the final bastion of hamas to prevent hamas continuing to threaten israel with another october the
12:23 am
seventh. and as a result of that, this plan has been presented to the war cabinet for the evacuation from areas where fighting is taking place, even specify refer, as you said, but seems likely that rafah is a part of that plan. and quite when that would be enacted, or what details are a part of that plan we're not too short, right now, but certainly israel's intention is to go into rafah with or without a deal for a ceasefire and the release of hostages rosemary. >> now, thanks to elliott gotkine joining us live from london, and nic robertson met with the father of slain palestinian american teen tawfic abdel jabbar, who was shot in the west bank last month, his father says their family is still struggling for answers and try to bring the person responsible for his son's killing to justice >> so this dirt road, you see one down here? yeah, this is war. where tawfic was shot at an american father, hafiz abdel

ukraine's efforts on the battlefield are being hampered by a diminishing supply of ammunition and weapons. aid that is critical to ukraine's fight has stalled in the us congress and president joe biden is preparing to meet with the top four congressional leaders on tuesday as the wild house pushes for action, mr. zelenskyy is warning the number of casualties in ukraine will only increase without further us military aid. he spoke about that with cnn's kaitlan collins. she has the details now from kyiv in our one-on-one interview with president zelenskyy, he really laid out the stakes for what is on the ground here going to happen >> in ukraine, if they don't get any more aid from the united states, of course right now, it is at a complete standstill in the us congress, house. republicans blocking that package that was passed by the senate with 60 he billion dollars in aid for ukraine. we asked president zelenskyy specifically about some criticism that has come from
12:35 am
senators who blocked that, including senator jd vance. >> i'm not trying that he understands what's going on here. we don't need any rhetoric of from people who are not deeply in the, you know, in the war. so to understand it is to come to the frontline to see what's going on to speak with the people then to go to civilians to understand what will be with them. and that what will be with them without this support. and he will understand that millions people have been killed will be killed >> if he doesn't understand it because she doesn't understand it. of course, he got the god bless. you, don't have the war on your territory president zelenskyy saying that millions of lives of ukrainian lives will be at stake if there is no more aid coming from the united states. making clear what a difference he believes it is made on the battlefield, not just what it would do in the future, but what it has done
12:36 am
for ukraine in these last two years since russia invaded. and of course, the stakes could not be clearer for them. but what he also said there at the end of that moment was talking about how these are the decision-makers in the united states, including people like senator jd vance, house speaker mike johnson, who president zelenskyy noted that he had met with previously, and saying that he had no choice but to trust him when it came to what's going to happen with this aid to ukraine? >> australia has now imposed financial sanctions and travel bans on seven russian prison officers. it accuses of mistreating alexey navalny at a siberian penal colony. the putin critic died behind bars on february 16 australia says these are the next steps and holding accountable those responsible for grave breaches in navalny's human rights. the deputy prime minister also says, australia holds vladimir putin and the russian government responsible for navalny's treatment and death in custody the kremlin denies
